Nationals' Max Scherzer: Dominant in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer gave up two runs (one earned) on six hits and one walk while striking out 10 through six innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Monday.

After giving two runs in the first two innings, Scherzer only allowed two hits the rest of the way. The right-hander delivered more dominance, gathering 18 swinging strikes on his way to 10 strikeouts. He has a 1-4 record with a 3.78 ERA and 1.96 FIP through eight starts this season. Scherzer will make his next start Saturday at Dodger Stadium.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Rebounds from shaky first frame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (1-4) allowed three earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out eight across seven innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Scherzer allowed all three of his earned runs in the first inning by surrendering four consecutive hits, three of which were singles. However, he mostly stabilized his performance from there and still managed to pitch deep into the game to mitigate the early damage. It's been a surprising start to the season for Scherzer, as he owns a 4.08 ERA and 1.17 WHIP through 46.1 innings, though his 62 strikeouts ease concerns regarding his early results. He'll draw a tough matchup in his next start Monday at Milwaukee.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Strikes out 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer allowed two runs on four hits with 10 strikeouts and no walks across seven innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Friday.

The 34-year-old was tremendous, but clinging to a late one-run lead, the run he allowed in the seventh cost him a chance at a win. This was Scherzer's fourth start with at least nine strikeouts, but that's about the only category he's dominating at the moment. Scherzer is 1-3 with a 4.12 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in 39.1 innings this season. His next outing will be against the Cardinals at home Wednesday.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Starting as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (ribs) is starting as expected against the Padres on Friday.

Moreover, there has been nothing from the Nationals' beat writers suggesting Scherzer will be limited. Scherzer tweaked an intercostal muscle in his left rib cage while dodging a foul ball Sunday, but he completed 20-pitch bullpen sessions Tuesday and Wednesday in preparation for this start.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Remains on track for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (ribs) threw a 20-pitch bullpen Tuesday and will throw another 20-pitch session Wednesday, and assuming everything goes as planned, he'll start Friday's game against San Diego, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Scherzer tweaked a muscle in his left rib cage Sunday while attempting to get out of the way of a foul ball in the dugout, although he's not expected to miss any time because of the minor issue. He'll attempt to prove his health in another side session Wednesday before Washington gives him the green light for Friday's outing.
